T: What brings you good energy?
A: The proudness and fulfillments of my family. Their satisfaction just gives sparks on so many levels.
T: What is your favourite part of having your own fashion brand?
A: Feeling freedom. That I’m able to move and create from a perspective that I believe in and is sincere. Also that I’m giving away the thought of possibilities. The motivation to inspire someone who thought they might not do it themselves.
T: Where do you get your inspiration from?
A: Anything that comes from love.
T: What is your best act of self-love?
A: Reflect, forgive, accept and a lot of praying.
T: What motivates you to level up?
A: The world.. the culture.. the youth.. there are so many wounds, so much beauty that isn’t told yet. So much truth that hasn’t come to light yet. I want to take part in that.
T: What does fashion mean to you?
A: to me it’s a definition of someone’s route, their way of life or expression. Like a movie. you dress a person to understand the character.
T: What's your strong suit?
A: Analyzing its purity or authenticity and let it speak out loud.
